Coin Details

The heads design of the medal was a creation of Justin Kunz. Justin is the talented US Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) designer. It showcases a new representation of Liberty as a modern woman. She is wearing a crown of olive leaves– trustfully holding in her hands the American flag and a lighted torch. This powerful image was a sculpture by the remarkable Phebe Hemphill. Phebe delicately engraved her and designer’s initials on the obverse side. You will also see the inscriptions “Liberty” and “2016.”

On the reverse side of the medal depicts the majestic representation of the beloved American Eagle. This was a creation by another talented AIP designer – Paul C. Balan. The image is a sculpture by Don Everhart II, the US Mint Sculptor-Engraver. It features a gorgeous eagle gripping an olive branch in its talons while rising in flight. The eagle is the “embodiment of freedom.” “DE” and “PCB” initials surround the eagle, the “S” or “W” mintmark, and “United States of America.”
